Never get out of these blues alive

Never get out of these blues alive
    Avem deosebita placere sa aducem in atentia colectionarilor de vinil un album foarte bun care din pacate a trecut neobservat. Acum a sosit momentul sa reparam aceasta greseala, iata cateva informatii despre acest disc:

    A aparut in toamna anului 1971, inregistrarea s-a efectuat la Wally Heider Studios in San Francisco, aceasta fiind o garantie a calitatii sunetului. Editarea pe vinil a fost facuta la celebra casa ABC Dunhill Records, producator Ed Michael. Music on Vinyl astazi reediteaza cu succes acest disc, dupa 43 de ani. Calitatea presajului – impecabila, coperta de asemenea.

    Iata componenta albumului: Alaturi de John Lee Hooker alte nume sonore: Steve Miller – orga si chitara, Charlie Musselvihte – muzicuta, Van Morrison – vocal, Elvin Bishop – slide guitar, Robert Hooker ( fiul) – claviatura, Michael White – vioara, Ken Swank – baterie, John Khan – bass, Mark Naftalin – pian.

    Muzica acestui disc apartine country blues-ului impletindu-se cu detroit blues si elemente de delta blues, instrumentatia albumului fiind desavarsita. Un element surprinzator pentru acest album de blues autentic este prezenta viori, inspirat interpretata de Michael White, pe cele doua piese ale albumului. Hooker este in plina efervescenta creativa ( avea doar 45 de ani ) , este plin de viata si nu mai emana acea tristete in interpretare, care mai tarziu isi pune amprenta definitiv. Van Morrison interpreteaza in tandem piesa T.B Sheets magistral.

    Asadar Living Music recomanda cu caldura achizitionarea acestui vinil, pana de curand aproape imposibil de procurat.

Those Were The Days - Summer Of Love -- San Francisco USA

Publicat la 18.06.2013

West coast sound, psychedelic style:

Haight-Ashbury is a district of San Francisco, California, named for the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets. It is also called The Haight and The Upper Haight. The neighborhood is known for its history of hippie subculture.                       

The district generally encompasses the neighborhood surrounding Haight Street, bounded by Stanyan Street and Golden Gate Park on the west, Oak Street and the Golden Gate Park Panhandle on the north, Baker Street and Buena Vista Park to the east and Frederick Street and Ashbury Heights and Cole Valley neighborhoods to the south.
The Haight-Ashbury district is noted for its role as a center of the 1960s hippie movement. The earlier bohemians of the beat movement had congregated around San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood from the late 1950s. Many who could not find accommodation there turned to the quaint, relatively cheap and underpopulated Haight-Ashbury. The Summer of Love (1967), the 1960s era as a whole, and much of modern American counterculture have been synonymous with San Francisco and the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood ever since.
The mainstream media's coverage of hippie life in the Haight-Ashbury drew the attention of youth from all over America. Hunter S. Thompson labeled the district "Hashbury" in The New York Times Magazine, and the activities in the area were reported almost daily. The neighborhood's fame reached its peak as it became the haven for a number of the top psychedelic rock performers and groups of the time. Acts like Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin all lived a short distance from the intersection. 
They not only immortalized the scene in song, but also knew many within the community as friends and family. Another well-known neighborhood presence was The Diggers, a local "community anarchist" group known for its street theatre who also provided free food to residents every day. During the "Summer of Love", psychedelic rock music was entering the mainstream, receiving more and more commercial radio airplay. The Scott McKenzie song "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)," written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, became a hit single in 1967. The Monterey Pop Festival in June further cemented the status of psychedelic music as a part of mainstream culture and elevated local Haight bands such as the Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company and Jefferson Airplane to national stardom. A July 7, 1967, Time magazine cover story on "The Hippies: Philosophy of a Subculture," an August CBS News television report on "The Hippie Temptation" and other major media interest in the hippie subculture exposed the Haight-Ashbury district to enormous national attention and popularized the counterculture movement across the country and around the world. The Summer of Love attracted a wide range of people of various ages: teenagers and college students drawn by their peers and the allure of joining a cultural utopia; middle-class vacationers; and even partying military personnel from bases within driving distance.
